    I'm predicted all A*/As, so unfortunately I can't do the whole, "If I try really, really, reaaallly hard, can I get £50 p/A*?" thing on them xD

    After my science ones, I think I got £50-odd from my parents and grandparents. Nice unexpected surprise

    I got nothing, maybe a card actually :beard: I had one friend who was promised something like £100 for A* £80 for an A etc. But then she did a lot better than expected and got about £500. Jammy.

    No. I got the best results in my school and all I got was this lousy degree programme.

    I got a £700 laptop, but to be fair, that was to take me all the way through Sixth Form and uni, so it wasn't just a GCSE present
    Still awesome though!
